Some background
FIRA is initiated by ABN AMRO, Rabobank Nederland, Achmea and NEVI and is meant to provide members with a Portal where potential customers and vendors can look each other up and see what kind of sustainable activities these organizations have executed or are currently busy with. Besides the sustainable aspect off course, the Portal helps us in RFP processes where we have to supply the potential customer with all kind of information regarding ‘doing sustainable business’.
